  • The House is wonderful and this impeccably well maintained. Surrounded by an impressive garden with some extra attractions such as a gondola used in the past.

  • Cultural tour of a lifetime. Very quiet environment, in the middle of beautiful garden. We had the opportunity to see how Belo Horizonte was planned: is going on the exhibition on cartography of the Capital.

  • Is a good place to meet, have a lot of vegetation, almost like a square, it's good to appreciate historical pieces as old cars and read a little about cartography, or simply to enjoy nature and relax in a late afternoon.

Where to stay in Belo Horizonte

Most of the city's accommodations lie within the inner ring road, in close proximity to the best attractions in Belo Horizonte. For convenience, look to stay in the vicinity of Praça Raul Soares, the city's central park and rotary. You can also find a range of high-rise hotels a bit farther south, in the neighborhoods of Boa Viagem and Savassi, close to Praça Diogo de Vasconcelos. About 10 km (6.2 mi) north of the city center, the 1940s neighborhood of Pampulha stands out as one of the most interesting places to visit in Belo Horizonte, and offers a decent selection of lodgings near the airport.
